First off, apologies for the poor quality of the photos, the weather was so awful outside and it was super dark inside! But give me a woop woop for finally getting a different post up. It was about time I changed it up and having worn shirts a lot recently for the smart casj look this was the perfect opportunity to share how I wear the shirt in different ways and on different occasions.

 1~ Wearing Boyfriend's gingham shirt | Topshop Bralet | American Apparel riding pants | Topshop boots

I styled an oversized gingham shirt undone over the top of a pretty lace bralet and high waisted riding pants. It shows off a bit of skin but keeps your modesty in check through layering. The shirt could be worn normally or tied round the waist for a casual look.

 2~ Wearing Boyfriend's gingham shirt | Primark duster jacket | River Island jeans | Primark sliders

I buttoned the shirt up and tucked one half in for a more contemporary look and to show the high waisted jeans. I layered it with a black duster coat to create a smart casual vibe and kept to the monochrome theme with black and white snakeskin sliders.

3~ Wearing ASOS shirt | ASOS skirt | Missguided heels | New Look belt

This look is more glam for a work event or a smarter occasion. It created a cute school girl vibe from the pleated full skirt and the bright pop of colour paired with your average white shirt, slightly unbuttoned. The strappy heels keep it chic and dressy but a pair of loafers would dress it down for daytime.

 4~ Wearing ASOS shirt | New Look culottes | Primark sliders

The culotte and shirt combo is perfect for a day at work styled with simple sliders for daytime or a blazer and heels for night. The shirt would also look great untucked for a more casual take on the outfit.

 5~ Wearing H&M shirt | Miss Selfridge jacket | Primark jeans | Converse trainers

Ripped jeans and converse create a super casual vibe for an everyday look with an oversized white cotton shirt. Keep the top buttons undone to show a small amount of cleavage and to keep it perfect for daytime. Update it with heels and some gold accessories for evening.

 6~ Wearing H&M shirt | FivePoundTee sweatshirt* | Primark sliders

A long sweatshirt over a shirt is ideal for a comfy day at home or running errands and add some cute denim shorts if you're a bit worried about the sweatshirt riding up. Keep the collar over the top and turn up the sleeves outside the jumper and ideally wear a shirt long enough to hang out the bottom.

A blue shirt and blue jeans are so easy to wear for work, everyday and great for evening drinks too. Tuck half the shirt in and wear minimal jewellery and accessories to nail the simplicity. Add some colour with your shoes!

Tieing the front of the shirt together can relax an outfit. i paired it here with some sporty white shorts and converse to achieve a sports luxe vibe.

Let me know what you think of the looks and the post in general! I hope you liked it.
